TQM Book Club - Tom's Midnight Garden by Philippa Pearce

8 June 2024
10.15am-11am

Tom’s Midnight Garden is one of the best-loved children’s books of all time. TQM Book Club is aimed at children aged 8-11yrs.

When Tom is sent to stay at his aunt and uncle’s house for the summer, he resigns himself to endless weeks of boredom. Lying awake at night, he hears the old grandfather clock downstairs strike . . . eleven . . . twelve . . . thirteen . . . Thirteen! How strange! When Tom gets up to investigate, he discovers a magical garden. A garden that everyone told him doesn’t exist. A garden that only he can enter . . .

In this enchanted thirteenth hour, the garden comes alive-but Tom is never sure whether the children he meets there are real or ghosts . . .

The sessions are aimed at children aged 8-11yrs to improve vocabulary and concentration, help them perform better academically, give them in a deeper understanding of the world, and much more!
